Today is Kevin Stocker's 42nd birthday. Drafted in 1991, Stocker made his major league debut with the Phillies in 1993 and what a doozy it was. Stocker's debut turned out to be a 20-inning game lasting over six hours against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Mitch Williams blew a save in the ninth inning by allowing two runs, walking three batters and a single to force in one run and Larry Andersen gave up a single for a second charged run to Williams. Mike Williams gave up a run in the top of the 20th inning when Jose Offerman scored on a throwing error but the Phillies picked up the win in the bottom of the inning when Jim Eisenreich and Mickey Morandini were put in to scoring position on sacrifice bunt off the bat of Stocker (Stocker was safe on a fielder's choice) and Lenny Dykstra brought them home for the win on a walk-off ground-rule double. Stocker struck out twice in an 0-for-6 debut but did scored one run and walked twice. Other players to play in that game?...
